Everyday for a decade
In 2004 I undertook my first 365 project and failed that year. I also failed in 2006, 2007, and 2008. The first year I succeed was 2010. I didn't succeed until I had regular access to a smart phone. I had a cell phone with a camera before that, but that was not enough. Having a smart phone with a camera made it so much easier to get a photo every day.
I realized in 2012 was 25 percent way to doing this for 10 years. This really excited me because I could see really doing it. It became my goal and a big drive. Photography has become my main hobby for the past decade. I have taken at least one camera with me everywhere I've gone for the past decade.
This is a pretty hard thing to track. I changed the way I tracked the the project. Below you will see the Flickr albums for each of the years. Yes there are photos missing. It might take a while before I get this cleaned up, it takes a while to figure out which days are missing from the sets.
I could not have done this project without Flickr as a place to keep the photos. I had time to take photos every day, but I didn't have time to edit, upload, tag and categorize photos every day.
If I had all the time in the world, I'd make a list of my best photos, a list of all the cameras I used, a list of the subjects, a list of the locations, and anything else that strikes me.
This has been the best artistic project of my life. Maybe because it was more than a thousand little art projects. It was something that kept me thinking about photography and the world around me everyday.
